Infineon, 5G Automotive Association to Jointly Contribute to Connected Automated Driving

Infineon Technologies and 5GAA to work towards the 5G standard in the future automated connected vehicles 

Infineon Technologies announces to introduce the 5G standard into the car by joining 5G Automotive Infineon Technologies and 5GAAAssociation e. V. (5GAA). The association works on the introduction of new communication solutions enabling connected automated driving and on intelligent transport systems. Being a prime semiconductor company for automobile electronicscellular infrastructure and data security, Infineon has been providing key technologies required for 5G, for the autonomous car, and for electromobility.

“Secure communication with practically zero time delay is a critical requirement for the breakthrough of autonomous driving,” said Peter Schiefer, President of the Automotive division at Infineon. “In close cooperation with the car industry and IT, Infineon supports the communication solutions for the automated car with its cutting-edge semiconductors and with system and security expertise.”

“We’re delighted with Infineon’s joining the 5GAA,” said Dino Flore, Director General of the 5GAA. “Infineon’s chip expertise for car electronics, data security, and mobile communication is a truly valuable addition to the 5GAA.”

5G: A hundred times faster than 4G

Compared to the preceding 4G infrastructure, 5G is 100 times faster and able to transmit 1000 times more data in real-time. Enhanced mobile broadband access at multi-gigabit speeds requires advanced semiconductor solutions. Infineon provides high-frequency components that receive, amplify and transmit data, as well as components for antenna tuning and switching. In addition to the broadest portfolio for automotive electronics in the industry, Infineon supplies security chips that help secure the data communication inside a vehicle and with its external world.

Worldwide 5G standardization speeding success of the automated car

International standardization is a critical requirement for the market success of new technologies and their applications, such as the Internet of Things or autonomous driving. Together with major car manufacturers, Infineon is already active in all relevant industry associations in order to quickly make the automated and electric car a reality. Infineon is a member of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and of the world-leading industry association for the mobile communications sector GSM Association (GSMA). Infineon also joined the global Charging Interface Initiative e. V. (CharIN), which is dedicated to the development, establishment, and promotion of a world standard for a charging system for all kinds of battery-powered electric vehicles.
